Protect Your Investment with Honda Care GAP coverage.

If your vehicle is stolen or totaled in an accident, your auto insurance will only cover the current market value of the vehicle. What they pay, and what you owe your lender, may not be the same. In fact, after deductibles, you could owe a substantial amount.

Honda Care Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) can cover the difference between the amount you owe your lender and the amount your insurance covers, up to $50,000. You can purchase Honda Care GAP for a one-time fee, or include it in your financing.

Honda Care GAP coverage:

  • Protects new and used Honda vehicles, Honda Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles and other used non-Honda vehicles
  • Protects vehicles up to 10 years old
  • Provides a maximum benefit of $50,000
  • Covers your insurance deductible up to $1,000*

* Coverage varies by state. Honda Care GAP is not available in select states (see your local Honda dealer for full details). Insurance deductible coverage may be limited by state. Please refer to your Honda Care GAP Waiver or Policy for details.

The Honda New Vehicle Limited Warranty and Honda Care Vehicle Service Contract cover similar components and provide similar benefits. The Vehicle Service Contract coverage of those components and services begins when the New Vehicle Limited Warranty coverage has expired.
